in opposing that kind of warfare. >> the world now demands -- of america, that we may not be able to achieve. it demands we admit that we have been wrong from the beginning of our -- that we have been -- to the life of the vietnamese people. the situation is one in which we must be read counter to turn sharply from our present ways. in order to atone for our sins, and in vietnam we should take the initiative and bring a halt to this tragic war. >> that was dr. martin luther king jr. in 1967. quick question -- if he were alive today, i wish he were, would he support military operations in syria? >> i'm sure that dr. king would not. it's interesting. i actually was born in '68, born the year he was killed -- >> don't rub it in. >> true story. true story. i was born the year he was killed, and bobby kennedy was killed. certainly in my generation, has learned that you do not go into -- and put troops on the ground recklessly, but this is not what the president is proposing. he's basically saying we're going to do a brush back, tell this guy you can't keep doing it, and he should come to congress
't be for the president because it puts it on congress or whatever happens. you were disagreeing. >> nobody in america wants this war. let's start with that. i think the president felt he was being stampeded into a war by his own staffer a and washin elite. >> his own words as well. >> he said red line. he said red line a year ago. is that written in the bible. people bring that up as a typical washington story, typical washington hysteria. the french call the logic of war. everybody gets on this train within a power elite and just keeps pushing toward war until there's no turning back. he said it's time to stop and take breath. >> i understand that. in that if you think it's just politics playing out but don't you think the president feels some sort of pressure saying those are my words. am i going to have any credibility if i do nothing. >> he said he's going to do something about it, but he said congress has got to get on board. frankly, he had not put the ducks in a row that he needs to do before he does anything. it's not going to be a limited strike. you start with a limited strike, it's going t

we have to move on. it also reminds us there is still a lot of racism in america. and hot spots for it that we still have to deal with. i think one of the problems, don, is when you start talking about what black people can do to help themselves and how they should work on this and work on that, people then attack that as if you are saying there is no structural racism. there is no institutional racism. that is not true. it is not either/or but both of those things. there is institutional racism and as the president said you have to have black people working hard, struggling to get ahead to be successful and their parents have to join in that and the community has to join in that and that is also very key. if you're weak, if you're weak because you don't have an education or you don't have good psychological makeup because of the way you were raised, you are not going to be an effective fighter, someone who can continue to advance black people and attack the ongoing institutional racism in america. >> i saw some people, there was some discussion. i didn't actually see the progra
again you're going to have more civilian blood being shed. and everyone saying is america going to be able to protect us in that case and where has america been for the last two years, wolf? >> it's interesting in the same statement that was broadcast on syrian state television, they said that john kerry, what he was doing and i'll read the line here, he was doing what was basically a scene that reminds the world of the lies and the fabrications that colin powell tried to market days before iraq's invasion back in 2003. so a very, very strong statement, a rejection ridiculing, as you correctly point out, arwa, what the secretary of state said today. you also have stunning reporting of a different attack in syria, not the juone august 21st but a different one. i want to warn our viewers the video we're about to see is very graphic, extremely disturbing. what do we know, arwa? what happened here? >> reporter: yeah, it really is terrible video, wolf. now, this attack happening earlier in the week when the focus was on damascus, on the u.n. inspectors and this is what was taking pla
assad a green light? >> well, i think when the chief military person in the united states of america makes an unequivocal statement that we will not be involved and are basically under any circumstances, i think that clearly bashar al assad and his people read those reports. but most importantly is that i know, because i've been in syria, wolf, i know that general idris and his people, we could get the weapons to them and they could succeed if we take out the air assets and provide a safe zone for them to operate out of. that does not mean american boots on the ground. that does not mean further escalation by the united states of america or involvement. people worry about escalating involvement by the part of the united states. those are decisions that are made. i would not make those decisions. but to sit by and watch the region deteriorate into chaos is something that is not in the united states' national security interests, not to mention our humanitarian view of massacre of well over 100,000 people, a million children are refugees. by the way, these children will grow up to be ve
of america say, basically, implicate that gay men are not men, that they're not guys. >> reporter: that's cory booker, newark's mayor and new jersey's democratic candidate for senate, it came after republican steve longgan came out with statements. >> he said, i love seeing on twitter when someone says, "i'm gay," and i say, so what does it matter if i am. so be it. i hope you are not voting for me because you are making the presumption that i'm straight. >> longgan response. >> his peculiar fetish is how it was described. i have a more peculiar fetish. i like a good scotch and a cigar. >> the fact that what defines manhood is the drink you drink or the cigar that you smoke, i think he just really misses the boat on what it means to be a man in america. >> reporte >> reporter: booker also to twitter saying your bigotry is no less heinous than race bigotry. lonegan clarifying his position during a press conference. >> this election is not about validating cory booker's lifestyle. i don't care if cory booker is gay or straight. the problem is he's too liberal for new jersey. >> reporter:
: and in the fall -- >> i'll address the implications of these issues for america's global leadership and our moral standing around the world. >> reporter: tea leaves, anyone? officially she's enjoying her time writing a book, working on early childhood development at the clinton foundation and spending time with her husband and daughter, who also won't comment. >> i don't know what hillary's going to do but whatever it is i expect to support it. >> reporter: now that's on message. an outside pac called ready for hillary has raised more than $1.25 million basically to clear the field for her entry. >> i think it's presumptuous to presume she will be a candidate. we need to show her the support to encourage her to run. >> reporter: when do you think it will be? >> it's so hard to tell. >> the first democratic primary is expected to be around january of 2016. so several top democrats that i've spoken with argue that if hillary clinton does decide to run, she doesn't even have to announce until december of 2015. that's because she has such broad name recognition, that could keep her out of the politic
as difficult as the problem is, this is something that is going to require america's attention and hopefully the entire international community. >> arizona senator john mccain said it's time to act. >> if the united states stands by and doesn't take very serious action, not just launching some cruise missiles, then, again, our credibility in the world is diminished even more if there's any left. >> reporter: as for consultations with congress from the white house, a senior administration official cautions once again the president has not made a decision on military action against syria, but house speaker john boehner's office complained earlier today that the white house had not been in touch with his office. then the speaker's office in the last hour reported to cnn and other news outlets that they had in fact received some kind of phone call from the white house but that phone call was not of much substance, according to an aide in the speaker's office. as secretary kerry said earlier this afternoon and as jay kacary said in the briefing this afternoon, there is nmore to come, not just fro
situation room." we begin this hour with president obama. he says america is not interested in spying on ordinary people. following leaks revealing massive government snooping programs, he says he's acting to boost confidence in national security, surveillance, working with congress to make it more transparent. >> i'm going to be pushing the i.c. to do, rather than have a trunk come out here and a leg come out here and a tail come out there, let's just put the whole elephant out there so we can see what's working and what is not. >> and he says skipping the meeting with putin is not solely because of edward snowden. this from a news conference from the president earlier today for about an hour. we go to jessica yellin for more of the highlights. >> reporter: in that sound bite he announced a major new effort to make more transparent how the surveillance programs in the u.s. work. basically what he's trying to do is pull back the curtain on more of the massive surveillance system that the u.s. has deployed and explain from the president and the administration's perspective both why it'
's certainly one of america's most important allies in the middle east. right now egypt is unraveling as the world watches. the united nations security council will hold an urgent meeting this hour in new york. the united states is telling americans to get out of egypt. the state department says if you're in egypt, leave. if you need help, ask. and if you're planning to go to egypt, don't do it. more than 500 people were killed in clashes yesterday, thousands were injured leaving the country reeling. fred joins us live from cairo. what did you see today on the streets of the egyptian capital? >> reporter: hi, wolf. the emotions here still absolutely charged in cairo. what happened today is i went to a mosque in cairo. what was in the mosque was a lot of the people killed in that crackdown that happened yesterday. there were supporters of mohamed morsi who told us as many as 500 bodies were inside that mosque. we didn't get the chance to count them because there were people coming in, trying to take the bodies of their relatives out for burial. of course these people were grieving and
republicans look at this map and say look at all this red in america, we kept our majority in the house, we have 30 governorships. some republicans argue it's not because the nominee was too conservative, they argue the nominee made the mistake of moving to the center. that's the debate in the party now. we do know in 2012 we know from the election the reason the president was able to win and win so convincingly, look at this. republicans lost the latino vote by 44 votes in 2012, lost the women vote by 11 points, lost the younger votes by 23 points. now there's new evidence among another key constituency the republicans are suffering. this is from polling from stan greenberg, a democrat but republicans don't dispute the elections. that group now over 65, their favorable opinion of the republicans party is only 28%, down 15 points from just a couple years ago. ask the elderly how are you going to vote in 2014, 46% say they'll vote republican. the republicans in 2010 had a 21-point advantage. look at the problem. you have a problem with latinos, a problem with women, younger voters and now a
